    A Steeler fan this week asked on Sirius radio if the hosts thought Eddie would be a good replacement for Bettis in Pittsburgh given that Staley battles so many injuries. They had a good chuckle with that.

    Wouldn't bother me at all to see a #27 out there. Eddie was not walter payton, he will not be in the hall of fame. Eddie proabably would be more deserving of having his number retired than wycheck. He made twice as many pro bowls and never missed a game which is a significant accomplishment.

    The only jersey number that should be untouchable in my mind would be bruce matthews. To be that good that long is simply extrordinary and he was the best player in franchise history.

    Consider this...

    I mentioned this stat on another thread but it puts wycheck in perspective. 6 TEs had more yards receiving in 2005 than wycheck had in his best season. Wycheck had 768 yards in 1998 his personal best. Antonio gates had 1100 yards receiving this year. Can you honestly say that wycheck was a better player then than a todd heap, jason witten or shockley now? No and he couldn't touch a gonzales or gates. Even in an era in which there were not as many good TEs wycheck only made 2 pro bowls.

    Good player, i loved the guy but not an all time great.
